7:01pm
on the campaign trail in florida. and not welcome. this intruder busted trying to break into the home of one of hollywood's biggest young stars. tonight police say he did not come empty handed. what was his plan? also, exactly one year ago this world went dark after an explosion in afghanistan stole his sight. this former navy lieutenant a champion winning gold at the paraolympics. >> first tonight a fight that has been brewing for weeks now coming to a head in the critical swing state in the race for the white house in florida the president tries to turn attention away from the hurting jobs and economic picture to medicare. there are more than 3 million seniors in the sunshine state on medicare. it is an important issue. as you may know we enter knowing
7:02pm
damaging details about the jobs outlook in our country as we create jobs at an alarmingly slow pace. the unemployment stands at 8.8 percent. trying to switch the focus to medicare might hit a slippery slope. governor romney and congressman ryan would end medicare as we know it. the romney team quickly coming out with this response saying in a statement only one candidate in this race robbed medicare of $716 billion to pay for obama care. barack obama. he has done nothing to reform medicare in the long hall and prevent it from going bankrupt. this back and forth began hours ago with the president campaigning in florida. >> the voucher plan for medicare would bankrupt medicare. our plan strengthens medicare. no american should have to spend their golden years at the mercy of insurance companies.
7:03pm
>> more on the president's claims in a moment. first we know that governor romney is at his headquarters where he is preparing for the president sh presidential debate less than a month away. governor romney was not on the campaign trail but on one of the sunday talk shows. >> the ghovovernor outlined wha parts of the healthcare law he would keep if he is elected president. >> i am not getting rid of all of healthcare reform. there are a number of things i like in healthcare reform i am going to put in place one is to make sure those with preexisting conditions can get coverage. two assure the marketplace allows for individuals have policies that cover their family up to whatever age they might like. >> he also went to church with his family today and spent several hours preparing for those all important presidential debates coming up in october.
7:04pm
>> i know his running mate congressman ryan also making news today. what did he have to say? >> he defended his medicare plan which democrats claim would end medicare as we know it. ryan's budget calls for a premium support system that would help them buy health insurance on the open market or stay with the current plan. he says something has to be done. >> it's a system that needs reforming so we don't want to put more money and more people on a program that is failing and not working. we want to reform medicaid. what we are saying is don't expand this program as dramatically as obama care does keep it like it is increase funding send it to the states so the states can fix the funding. >> his interview was also pretaped. he had toe campaign events. >> we will go to florida now. president obama continuing his bus tour. he spoke to a crowd in west palm beach. he hit governor romney on
7:05pm
medicare reform a hot topic at the sunshine state. he traveled with the president in west palm beach tonight. is this a strategy now trying to take the focus off jobs which effect so many people in this country and put it on healthcare. >> he is still talking about jobs he knows it's important. after the jobs report it plays into what the president has been trying to do is make it less a referendum about him and his record and make it a choice election about the future. medicare fits in two-ways. you have a lot of senior citizens they care a lot about medicare they want to hear about both sides plans. he has a target in the ryan budget and is suggesting this will end medicare as we know it. you heard him say it before. here's what he is saying today. >> here's what you need to know. i have strengthened medicare. we have added years to the life of medicare.
7:06pm

7:07pm
credentials are. an having note. >> right. it is a study from harvard a democrat. he has been tied to the president helping to put together some of their plans and whatnot. the obama campaign's push back on that is while this person is democrat he is still siting facts about the romney ryan budget plan. they believe inside the obama campaign in order to try to balance the budget as the ryan budget suggests it will far, far down the road they are going to have to have big cuts to medicare. as you noted earlier the republican ticket in order to pass the healthcare plan he had billions of dollars in cuts himself. >> a less leaning group looking at a republican plan. before i let you go there was a picture that popped up a short time ago. it was kind of odd. it looks like the president being hoisted into the air. what haled? >> i have never seen anything like this.
7:08pm
this is a pizza shop owner big apple pizza place in florida. he had what the president said big guns in terms of his biceps. he was so happy to see the president he lifted him in the air. there were no secret service agents. normally they would try to push back if they see the president being tossed around or tossed to the ground. he was a republican he voted for the president in 08. he was so excited to see him. he lifted him. he got a vote out of it. >> where was the secret service? >> well, in those pictures you don't see them right there. they have a judgment call. they do this on rope lines as well with the president's event. they watch people who might grab on to the president. they take a judgment on whether or not the president is going to be hurt. in this case they may have. they may have made that judgment call this was just an excited fan who wasn't going to hurt him. he didn't get hurt. >> somebody in the studio rough
